Open Course Bookings:

Your Booking:

1.Open Courses:

A booking on a Public Course that is not accredited (for accredited course bookings please see separate section below) is a “place” booked and not a place booked for a specific delegate. We keep this flexibility for you, the customer, in case you need to send an alternative delegate to the course at the last minute.

2. Accredited Courses:

A booking on an accredited course, as in First Aid is a place for the specific person, this is a requirement by the authorising body. It is to ensure all diversity and equity regulations regarding any reasonable adjustments (for learning or physical disabilities) are adhered to. It is a requirement that any reasonable adjustments required are authorised by the accrediting body and notice is required prior to the course to apply for this. Due to these facts an alternative delegate cannot be sent on the course unless agreed by Safe-Sure Care prior to commencement of the course. If an alternative candidate arrives on the day of the course without prior arrangement the company reserves the right to refuse entry on to the course. Any payments made in these conditions are non-refundable as this is deemed a breach in the contract.

Attendance is retrieved from the Attendee Sheets completed at the beginning of the course allowing Safe-Sure Care to issue certificates. Certificates are generated and issued using the Attendee Register from the beginning of the course. These certificates are emailed to the Client who made the booking (unless advised differently) within 14 days following the course. Please ensure that delegates attending the training course completes the attendee sheet clearly as any certificate amendments may incur a charge. Should you choose for your certificates to be printed and posted by Safe-Sure Care, this can be arranged at a cost of £2.50 per certificate.

Safe-Sure Care will provide the client with handouts and resources via email to the client who made the booking. It is the client’s responsibility to print and supply delegates with these resources and handouts for the booked course. Printed Handouts can be ordered at £2.50 per delegate to cover printing and postage charges.
